LG G2: The best Smartphone for Business Travelers

LG G2: The best Smartphone for Business Travelers | World Tour Outdoor Experience | Scoop.it
Travelers and Smartphone don't work together... but when travelling and business are a big part of your professionnal life, the LG G2 reveals its best.
Julien DIOT's insight:

The LG G2 was the first smartphone offering a long battery life (smartphone, not a 6" phablet like the Galaxy note that has a long battery life too).

Almost 6 months later, the Galaxy S5 and Sony Xperia z2 follow this trend while being dust proof and waterproof up to 1m deep for 30min.

The Grasshoppers Guide : My first 10 Days

The Grasshoppers Guide : My first 10 Days | World Tour Outdoor Experience | Scoop.it

The Grasshoppers Guide is an online website to introduce to you Australia. The concept is to present in every languages different businesses and resorts along the East coast during a 40 days trip from Cairns to Sydney.

Julien DIOT's insight:

After 10 days, I can't really give my opinion. I'm disappointed because I spent $2200 in and the activities we are doing are just "introduction to something". Even worst, every cool activities (bungee jumping, skydiving, scubadiving) are not included in the price! we have to pay for them. Moreover we have to stop every two days for shopping because we are 12 and we are all the time waiting for someone. The rythm is slow.

I've really enjoyed the Lake Eacham in the Atherton Tablelands and the scubadiving with Falla Reef (my birthday gift thanks to all the people travelling with me).

Also, the videos and pictures made by Stefan José and Mickey Anderson are really exceptionnal and are two big strengths of this trip.

 

I hope it will become better for the next 21 days because after 18 days I only paid for Hotels (I don't care at all) and not for awesome activities. At the moment, it's not worth it.

I've started using Triposo a few weeks ago in Thailand. Now I'm in Laos. I don't have internet access everywhere. Triposo is a great offline travel guide.
Julien DIOT's insight:

Countries all around the world are not even about internet/3-4G networks. Actually in Laos without SIM card, Triposo is an excellent free android app to know where you are, what to do and where to go next.

Moreover Triposo gives many advices and is often updated.

Poor countries and poor people are not trustworthy and money rules their world. Triposo will help you to distinguish what is true/fair from what is a trap or a scam.
